Publisher's Summary

The year is 993 BC. After years of bloody civil war, Eleazar son of Dodai, one of King David’s most elite warriors, wants nothing more than to finally live peacefully in the land. But on the plains near the Great Sea, a terrifying army of Philistines has mobilized to crush the Hebrew tribes once and for all. In the sun-drenched valleys and dark forests of the hill country, Eleazar and his warriors make their stand against Israel’s deadliest enemy. The fate of an entire nation rests on the courage of a small band of heroes known as the Mighty Men.In a land torn by conflict, depleted by drought and threatened by treachery, the horrors and heroism of the ancient battlefields come to life.This unabridged audio download of Covenant of War is the second book in the Lion of War series—the intense, gritty, and stylistic portrayal of the Mighty Men of Israel, a rag-tag band of warriors who came to King David in his most desperate hour and fought with him while he claimed the throne he was destined to fill. Their legendary deeds are recorded in 2 Samuel 23 and 1 Chronicles 11.

A Refreshing Insight

Understanding that not all readers will agree on the theology and maybe even the timeline of events, this book all the same is refreshing and insightful on what these events would have looked like. Easy to digest (coming from one who enjoys history but lacks in depth of knowledge) all the way through. There is graphic content that is not appreciated by some listeners, but in light of bringing understanding and awareness to what battle looks like, it is wholly appropriate. Personally enjoyed this book; as the entire Day of War series.

Fantastic Biblical Novel!

Graham's work is amazing as always and his work has matured since his first book. His take on the biblical narrative is as faithful as can be, as well as refreshingly realistic to the terrors of the ancient world. Truly God is a mighty God for uncivilized times as well.

Epic story telling

I loved listening to this book. It felt real and engaging, and I cared about the characters. It seemed real that David was troubled but still respected by his men. I liked the mighty men described here too.

Scattered Inspiration

It's evident how challenging it was for Graham to arrange the events in this story. It has well written battle scenes, but doesn't flow like the first book and is slow in some parts. I'd recommend for anyone that liked the first. It could be hard to follow for others.

Amazing Story

Loved this book, it kept me wanting more. Each time I had to pause it and walk away it was hard to do because it was always at a point where it felt like I needed to know how it ended. It's like an episode of your favorite TV show that leaves you hanging every week and you can't stop thinking about it until it airs again the following week. The only problem I have with it is that it feels like there should be another book.
